It originates from the vieilles vignes of Grenache and Syrah which were grown on soils of clay, brown limestone and rolled pebbles. Harvested by hand, fully destemmed and vinified in concrete vats, the wine was then aged for one year in 450-litre casks.

    Information about domain Le Sang des Cailloux

    Domaine du Sang des Cailloux was created in 1975 and bought by Serge Férigoule in 1990. As a sustainable winegrower, Serge decided to prohibit the use of chemical herbicides and artificial products. In 2003, his son Frédéric joined him to assist with cultivating the domain’s 17-hectare vineyard on a plateau facing the breathtaking Dentelles de Montmirail in the Vacqueyras appellation. Together, they decided to apply firstly for organic certification and then biodynamic. The reddish brown, clay-limestone and pebble terroir is primarily cultivated for red wine. For some years though Serge and Frédéric have also been trying their hand at white wine.
